stronger your passphrase, the more secure your data.

original input file with random garbage three times before deleting it in
order to thwart data recovery attempts by persons who may gain access to
your computer. If you're not quite ready for this level of paranoia yet,

Specifically, bcrypt uses Paul Kocher's implementation of the algorithm.
The source distributed with bcrypt has been slightly altered from the
